Hi, I’m Gracela Einarson… but everybody calls me Grace. I am from Mindanao, the second largest island in the Philippines. I am now based in Spain.
I grew up in Davao City where I studied for a teaching degree and passed my national licensure exam. I also have a TEFL certification. Later on, I obtained my real estate brokerage license and worked at the Philippine Social Security System – Housing Dept. After that, I got trained as a freelance virtual assistant. I am currently learning more Spanish and building my portfolio on Personal Styling, a long-time passion.
On this site, you will find posts about Davao and Mindanao, my life in Spain, insights and opinions, my travels and personal style topics. The reason why my blog is named Mindanao Advice is here. Moreover, it sums up my life-long motto: LIVE, LOVE and LEARN. I hope you can learn something from me through this platform. I also want to hear from you so feel free to comment in any of my posts and let’s start a discussion.
You can also communicate with me directly if you have any questions. I’m married to a Norwegian, Eldar, who is the editor and main photographer of this blog. He will also give inputs if there are topics that he can fill in with his knowledge. Here is one of his credentials: Certificate from the Norwegian Film Institute.
